Anoox is the only non-profit Social Search Network, in particular one with Millions of Members and Users[1
]. And very likely there will never
be another non-profit Social Search Network like Anoox. And there is a very good reason for this: because it takes Tons of Capital to develop an integrated Search Engine & Social Network, and no VC Wall Street investor
would want to make such investment of Capital and then see it operate as a not-for-profit for the benefit of People & Small Businesses on Main Street rather than operate on for-Profit basis for the
benefit of VC & Wall Street investors on Wall Street. That is why it took us 10+ Years
and Tons of sweat equity Capital by volunteers from around the World to develop this network. Although we would LOVE to see
many more non-profit Social Search Networks like Anoox, since the MORE C
s, the BETTER - More
Analogy: we are striving to do for Search engine & Social Network, what Linux™ did for OS and what MySQL™ did for Database, which is to pass Billions in SAVINGS to Small Businesses World Wide. But of course a Search engine & Social Network is not just Software to make it Open Source and that will be it in delivering great VALUE & SAVINGS to Small Businesses World Wide. But these are Services where the value is in the Size of the network and running this massive network in a flawless way under the load of Millions of concurrent users, daily attacks by hackers and all the others challenges that comes with running such a massive LIVE network, for the benefit of the Public with the goal of People over Profits ("POP").
It took 10 years of development to make Anoox possible
It took us almost 10 Years to develop Anoox to its current level where it is operating smoothly and feature rich. And for many years the survival of this network was in doubt. But we pulled through with the support of
our dedicated staff and generous donations of countless devoted members from around the World, specially the European Union. So indeed to develop and operate a non profit Social Search Network, which means without VC Wall Street funding, is a Herculean
task, and that is why there are NO other non profit Social Search Networks like Anoox.
Want to Support US? This network dedicated to Information Democracy & Public Service. Dedicated to putting YOU on Main Street ahead of Wall Street.
Anoox means passing Billions in SAVINGS to Main Street rather making Billions for Wall Street
Quite simply, by operating Anoox as a not-for-profit, what we are doing in effect is to pass the
Billions of Dollars or Euros of value that this Social Search network could garner on Wall Street, to People & Small Businesses on Main Street. Needless to say Wall Street does not like us because
of this fact, because once YOU get to know how much Value this network can pass to YOU on Main Street, YOU will LOVE US, which can save you Billions at the expense of Wall Street Billionaire Class.
Anoox is to Search engine & Social Media what Linux is to Operating System
A question we are often asked, is: "Is it even possible to develop & operate a Search Engine & Social Network without the Billions of Dollars of capital that the Big Wall Street firms have?
The answer to which is Yes, just look at Linux, or MySQL, etc. development efforts that were carried on by extremely thinly funded organizations, compared to their Wall Street peers of Microsoft & Oracle,
yet these tiny organizations produced products that have revolutionized the World as we know it. After all can you imagine the Internet without Linux & MySQL? Similarly, even though Anoox is an extremely tiny
organization compared to Wall Street Mega Goliath's such as Google, Facebook, etc., we have produced unmatched Value for People & Small Businesses on Main Street. But how
much more value we can produce for the benefit of the Public, entirely depends on more and more People getting involved with us, by realizing that just as Linux
made the World a much better place by being operated on non profit not-Wall Street basis, Anoox can make the World a much better place by being the non profit not-Wall Street based Search Engine & Social Network.
